A couple that I like to recommend that sometimes don't get the notice they deserve:

Richfield, 1992-06-08 - Hot first set includes Stranger, Loser, Rooster, So Many Roads, Tom Thumb's, BT Wind and Don't Ease Me In. All great versions with energy typical of most Richfield shows. Set II is dynamite. Even Corrina sounds good, flowing into a sweet and rare 'mind left body' jam (often mistaken for 'dear prudence'). The dark star is tight and edgy, the first night of a three-part dark star that was finished later in the tour.

The Palace - 1993-06-09 - This is a strong show, especially for Jerry. The first set hits its stride from Franklin's on -- minus Ch-easy Answers -- but including a nice Loose Lucy one of the best Bertha's I've heard in latter-day Dead. The energy carries over into China -> Rider and picks up again in a great Terrapin, including a really interesting jazzy jam/transition into Drums. But really almost every song totally jams, even wave to the wind sounds good. check out jerry jamming at the end of wharf rat!! you'd be hard-pressed to find a better version of this classic song. no kidding. a shining moment in what was a pretty spotty period for the Dead. The previous night has an awesome Bird Song too.
